This morning we got in a batch of Freedom Ranger chicks - 102 altogether. We are raising them up for meat mostly for our family and extended family. They are a fast growing bird - they finish out at about 5 to 7lbs. - but they don't get as big and gross as the standard broilers. They live a pretty normal life and actually walk around and play in the grass and forage:) Yummo - meat growing - it's like watching lettuce in the garden, well maybe a little more animated!
We also had another ewe give birth this morning! Little Mamma had twins - a boy and a girl. We were on our way to the far pasture to feed the horses when we saw them.
Right now they are cute but pretty soon they will start to get stinky. :)
